Random Pictures

I am so tired tonight, but I wanted to make sure that I posted some pictures from our week. Hope you enjoy!!

Love my sweet husband. Seriously, this guy is so good to me. He even made a trip to Bi-Lo to get some cereal for a class project Grayson is doing this week. This picture is from Saturday night, we had just gotten back to my parents house. Earlier we attended Jason's police banquet. 

Sweet Husband.... see what I mean?!? :)

We love our old doggie!! 

On Monday (MLK day), we went down to Blythewood to visit Jason's dad. Here is a picture of our silly boy!!

Hours and Tricycle Riding

Wow... this week has been a heck of a long one...

I began my last class of my current master's degree program last Monday. I cannot believe that I am already at the finish line-- but I am certainly not crossing it yet. This class lasts for 12 weeks and I have so many assignments I do not even want to begin to list them. In addition to the assignments, I am responsible for shadowing my principal for 90 hours during this time. That equals out to around 7.5 hours a week... in addition to my current job.

SO- I've been spending long hours at school... long hours to get my students ready for a big audition they did on Saturday, and long hours to get this time in for my Master's program. It has been worth it, my students did exceptionally well yesterday (better than ever!), and I am learning so much through my principal.

Today was family day. We had fun together all day long and then decided to go to a nearby school to walk on the track after Grayson woke up from his nap. Grayson decided to bring his tricycle. He rode around the track 5 times.... that means he traveled 1.25 miles!!! I can't believe it. He is going to have some sore little legs tomorrow morning!!

** I would also like to add this: Grayster does not like trash. The coffee cup lid on the back of his tricycle is something he found while we were out at the track. He picked it up and drove it to the nearest trash can. ***

Pictures and Diets

Two things:

1) Today I decided to hang pictures on the wall leading up our stairs. I absolutely love them!!! We purchased this house in May 2006. For way too many years I have been so scared to actually put paint and pictures on our walls. I didn't want to do anything that would make the house more difficult to sell when we got ready to do so... well guess what... my thinking was WRONG!!!

We love this house and we aren't ready to move yet or in the near future. Why can't I make this place what I want it to be?? Once I came to that realization (this summer) I have really enjoyed making our house a home. More cool stuff to come (I hope!!)...

2) After church today, Jason and I began our annual (yuck!) dieting. My goal is to get 20 pounds off by the summer. We're watching what we eat and I've been doing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred since January 1st. After I get through 30 days of that I want to move up to her Ripped in 30 DVD. Hah... the gym just ain't happening yet...

Me: BEFORE! :)
